As regular readers of the 8 Blog know, I teach instructional technology at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. Next week, the School of Education is hosting a week long series of events called Education on Location: National Issues at Home. Each day features a different theme which focuses on one of the serious issues currently facing education including drop out rates, vouchers, school choice and teacher unions. To see a full schedule of events, check out the Education on Location web page.
As part of the Education on Location week, I was invited to organize several events around the theme of Innovation in Education. One of the great parts of my job is that I get to work with so many creative teachers who are utilizing all sorts of innovative practices with their students. I thought the Education on Location events would be a perfect time to celebrate their work. On Wednesday September 28, I will be co-hosting two online events where several amazing teachers will showcase the innovative works they’re doing in their classrooms. The events are open to anyone who would like to attend. Feel free to join us by clicking on the appropriate link:
David Solon, Instructional Technology Coordinator for the Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit, will also co-host the event and all sessions will be held in the IU’s Elluminate room. I hope you’ll be able to join us for this event. Please remember that the online session times are Eastern Standard Time.
